Behold the Mermaid

Growing up, I never really thought I wanted to be an artist (ok, professionally- lets not get into the semantics of being an "artist"). First of all, I am right handed and I didn't think that should be allowed in the first place. Art was just something I sort of did to put off real life for a while. But as time went on, I never really kicked the habit. For me, I think it was mostly about fantasy and daydreams - which I don't anyone can live without, really (hence religion and video games). So here I am, putting off real life - or maybe trying to make this into real life.
 Whatever that is...

New Year Revolutions

Happy New Year, friends! I have a good feeling about 2013.

Here are some things I was working on in December! I couldn't post these earlier because they were Christmas presents...

...I would like to pretend that is a good enough excuse for not posting all of December, but it isn't. I'm a slacker.

Resolution 1: don't be a slacker.

And now, to ring in the new year, I'll leave you with some really basic advice that I have learned the hard way

1. Swans are jerks.
2. Never put regular soap in your dishwasher
3. Never forget the e-brake when changing a tire
4. Never use water instead of milk your cereal (seriously).
5. You never look as cool as you think
6. You never look as dumb as you feel
